Gran Canaria plans stadium upgrades in World Cup bid

Gran Canaria plans stadium upgrades in World Cup bid

Monday 18th July 2022

Gran Canaria is in the early stages of planning stadium upgrades to the Estadio Gran Canaria ahead of a possible World Cup bid.

Spain are likely to submit a joint bid with Portugal to host the tournament in 2030, and Gran Canaria is bidding to be a host venue.

The Estadio Gran Canaria is the largest stadium in the Canary Islands, however FIFA’s rules require a minimum capacity of 40,000 for all host stadiums - some 10,000 more than that ground’s current capacity.
